Welcome, Vivienne!

I've had a lot of fun in the last nine months writing about the exciting world of space exploration, but I'm ready to call in some backup.  Today, I'm thrilled to welcome my good friend Vivienne Baldassare to Cosmic Chatter.  Vivienne is a graduate student in the astronomy department at the University of Michigan, where she focuses on the study of active galactic nuclei and other fancy-sounding things.  She'll be bringing additional astronomy stories to the site, while I focus of space exploration and the technology that enables it.  She'll also be helping write and produce stories for the podcast.

Together, we hope to bring you ever-expanding coverage of the exciting world beyond our planet.  If there's something you'd like to see or hear, please don't hesitate to contact either of us with your suggestions!
